The new Vertigo editorial team took Seattle’s Emerald City Comic Con by storm over the weekend. The team held informal pitch and portfolio review sessions during the famed indie-focused comic show. Artist Janet K Lee and writer Asher Powell left lasting impressions on the team and were assigned to upcoming projects on the spot.

Janet K Lee, an Eisner award-winning artist (THE RETURN OF THE DAPPER MAN) was offered  to draw a story in VERTIGO QUARTERLY ANTHOLOGY SFX: SLAM, hitting shelves July 1. Additionally, Asher Powell will be writing an upcoming anthology story for VERTIGO QUARTERLY ANTHOLOGY SFX: KRAK due out later this year. 

Additional details on these stories and exciting new projects will be released in coming months, so stay tuned. In the meantime, welcome Janet and Asher to Vertigo's talented group of writers and artists.
